Mike Leach Discusses Bruce Feldman Suspension, Says ESPN Has 'Agenda'

Bruce Feldman, as you probably know by now, has been suspended indefinitely by ESPN. The college football writer has basically kept quiet over the fallout following a book he assisted former Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach in writing. The book takes some shots at analyst Craig James and the roll he played in Leach's firing, something ESPN apparently did not take kindly to, despite the "sports leader" giving Feldman approval to work on the book.

While Feldman has remained quiet, though, Leach has been very publicly defending him and the book. During his interview with the Big Dog, Joe Rose on WQAM in Miami (via Sports Radio Interviews), he accused ESPN of having an agenda and responded to the assertion that James may be the channel's golden boy:

"He evidently is because if you look at the public reaction, if you look at the blogs, everybody sees through it and understands it. People are recognizing the truth and nobody appreciates Craig James’ role in this. It’s insulting to everyone’s intelligence. Between Craig James and ESPN both they’re starting with this. Me being too dumb to see through what they’re doing and then it became well the public is too dumb to see through what they’re doing. Then with this thing with Bruce they think it’s almost like they’re so smart that we won’t understand it anyway and they’re so powerful that we have to do whatever they want no matter what. Everyone is seeing through it and everybody resents it."
